Project Dogwaffle Howler and Artist Sales

I thought it would be easier for folks to follow this if there was a singular thread for when PD Howler and PD Artist go on sale at various outlets. That way I could update as I saw a sale for those who are interested, but don't want to pay full price. By the way, there is no affiliate program, so I don't get anything from doing this, I just want to see this wonderful little program gain some traction.

So to start, for the weekend:
_____________________________

It's just about Black Friday, but we're starting right now on the savings through the weekend.

Howler 2019 is 60% off this weekend. Please do us a kindness, and let everyone on your forums and social media know about us. We're a tiny little group of artists trying to help people get there films made and art imagined. Don't keep Howler a secret! Thanks a lot!

Well, not sure where to post this, so I'll probably cross post in my Howler thread, too.

I'm doing a webinar this Saturday, 2 March 2019, sponsored by Digital Art Live, called Tinkering with Textures. It's basically a quick and dirty way to extend your runtime resources. It is geared towards Daz Studio, although the concepts are usable in Poser. And it is going to be pointed more towards the beginner to kinda intermediate user. Basically someone who can't afford a lot of content, or want to get more uses out of they content they have, without just relying on Shaders, but are not content producers, themselves.

If you know someone who might be interested, they can register right up through Saturday!

I will be using PD Howler for some of the textures, but am going to try to use GIMP or PS, as well. I'm not very good with them, but for basic work, I should be okay!

If you missed the free day, the Lite version is $22. It doesn't have any animation and a number of filters are cut out.

Personally, I'd go straight for the Artist version or the Full version, They aren't that much more expensive and the use you get out of them more than makes up for it.

Planning to add more free videos on YouTube soon to cover some of the new and very exciting additions to PD Howler 2019 (v12)
